§ MR. W. J. CORBET
asked Mr. Solicitor General for Ireland, Whether it is not the fact that the County of Wicklow is and has all along been in a state of tranquillity; and, whether he can state upon what grounds a public meeting, proposed to be held at Cranagh on the 5th instant, at which the senior Member was to address his Constituents, was suppressed?
§ THE SOLICITOR GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. WALKER)
The county of Wicklow is, and has been, peaceable. The proposed meeting at Cranagh was proclaimed because, being summoned to condemn land grabbings, it was announced to be held in the immediate vicinity of an evicted farm, which had been purchased by a man named Murphy, who had been "Boycotted," and as regards whom personal danger was apprehended if the meeting took place there.
